LG Esteem OneClickRoot NOW READY!!


Here we are folks, you can ROOT as needed!  We’ve been waiting a while for this one.  Without further ado…..let’s root this thing!!

My MetroPCS contact “Mr. MetroPCS” says there are a couple people we owe a big thanks to.  @Mtmichaelson and @djrbliss.  They together compiled the correct SU and Superuser.apk and wrote the final script for the rooting process.

Hit the break to get everything you need!

First things first:  Your device must be in USB Debugging mode. To turn it on, go to Settings > Applications > Development and check the box. Note that you can only select this while the phone is unplugged.

WINDOWS Users:  Download the LG Drivers here

After installing the USB drivers connect the phone to the PC.
Pull down the notification bar at the top of the phones screen and click on USB Connected.
Set the phone to Internet Connection mode.

Download LG_Esteem_Root.zip

Unpack and open run.bat

Let us know how it works in the forums

    Worked like a charm (LG OO), followed the instructions (with an exception of “Set the phone to Internet Connection mode”) didn’t find this option, didn’t use it, worked anyway. Cheers

    The LG Opt.Slider is a POS! Got it on sale thru Virgin and it works MUCH better now that I got the bloatware and BS off it THANX!! I didn’t have any of the issues I’m seeing others had. I followed the instructions and it worked like a charm.
